[Swiss Surrealist Painter and Sculptor, 1901-1966]
I almost didn't choose this photo because the rebel in my soul doesn't entirely appreciate the fact that the sculpture it depicts was located in the garden of the Hirshhorn estate in Greenwich, Ct. But I just read a someone's blog post on the place, which alludes to the fact that the sculptures have all been moved to Washington, D.C., somewhere. That redeems the justice issue a bit further, in my mind! ;-) What doesn't is the price tag on the estate, which is, or was, real estate. Minus statues: 38 million in 2008. Don't know if it's been sold since.
In any event, I love Giacometti (my father was a fan) and I feel an Artist of the Week post coming on...
